In 2012, Daonne co-founded Black Artstory Month in collaboration with the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership–a month long program in February that activates commercial, private and public spaces along Myrtle Avenue in Brooklyn, NY via murals, conversations, performances, screenings and art workshops with the intention of spotlighting the contributions and inspirations made by African Americans/ people of color within the visual and performing arts but also providing opportunities for up and coming artists and organizations to have a platform to showcase their work to the public.
Daonne holds an M.A. in Visual Arts Administration with a Non-Profit concentration from New York University and a B.A. in Art History from Vassar College. Daonne is also a former art student who is reconnecting to her practice via performance projects with the performance art collective Hot Hands.
